McConnell Statement on House Passage of 9/11 Victims Compensation Bill
LOUISVILLE, KY – U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) released the following statement regarding House passage of the September 11th Victim Compensation Fund bill:
“The first responders who rushed into danger on September 11th, 2001 are the very definition of American heroes and patriots. The Senate has never forgotten the Victim Compensation Fund and we aren’t about to start now. Nothing about our shared goal to provide for these heroes is remotely partisan. We will consider this important legislation soon.
